Where We Offer Support
With a keen understanding of how much resident happiness and safety mean to the success of works in occupied buildings, we’re proud of our in-house resident liaison service, which is multi-faceted to assist in delivering fire safety products with a resident-centric focus.
Being aware of the latest legislation changes and keeping up-to-date with advice from central government and the Department for Levelling Up Housing and Communities (DLUHC) is a key part of our service. To support the clients we partner with, we hold monthly sector-specific events where the latest guidance is shared as soon as it’s available, ensuring everyone is on the same page when it comes to fire compliance.
You’ll find us on most public sector (OJEU-compliant) frameworks across the UK, covering various localised geographies and services and offering a range of capabilities to ensure whatever service you’re looking for, we have an appropriate framework partner to suit your requirements.
- Asset Data
We’ve invested heavily in the latest technologies and systems to ensure the process of asset data collection and sharing is as quick and efficient as possible. Having developed our own surveying applications, portals and projection tools, our clients can rest assured that their data is protected and all projects are being managed with the most efficient systems in place.
